The GE Circuit Board DS3800DFPH1A1A features 1 34-pin ribbon cable and 3 trimmer potentiometers. The GE Circuit Board DS3800DFPH1A1A also is populated with multiple test points and 1 transistor-transistor logic component embedded on the board. If you have reason to suspect that the board has stopped processing and you suspect a problem with the board you can first run the diagnostic tools available on the drive.
The diagnostic tools generate a report of all the processing performed by the components. It also lists all the errors and warnings, as well as trip conditions generated by the drive. A trip condition is a serious problem that automatically shuts down the drive to prevent damage. This might be when the temperature in the interior of the drive rises above a threshold or if the drive is exposed to an overcurrent condition. From this information, a servicer or qualified person can in some cases diagnose the drive. If the board is suspected as defective, a qualified individual can use the test points to further narrow the cause of the problem. Unplug the 34-pin ribbon cable and remove the 4 screws that secure the board. Remove the board and have a testing device on hand to test the circuits on the board. There are 2 test points and so you have the opportunity to test 2 circuits.
You can have the board repaired if the problem can be pinpointed to 1 component. However, the board will remain offline while the repair takes place.
